Read full description of the books:



A Victorian father comes home from "a sorely trying day" to find his four children, dog, and cat fighting. An orgy of recriminations ensues; each blames the next in line, and the children are punished by not being allowed to press flowers in their scrapbooks for the rest of the week. (They are Victorian...) Upon being blamed by the dog, the cat complains: "I have been ill-used and unjustly treated." The cat then goes on to blame everything on a mouse, and the conversation between the two is one of the most brilliant in children's literature. "All this suffering must end somewhere," says the mouse. "Let it end with me, since I am the least of the least." He prepares to die, but the cat, possibly encountering a twinge of conscience, exclaims, "You are insufferable, and I refuse to let you die a hero's death." The cat then apologizes to the dog, and each family member begins to take responsibility. A wonderful moral lesson, with Lillian Hoban's black and white pencil drawings.
